If you can't win, complain!

There's been an influx of Glock firearms in the gun stores in my area lately.

In some stores the retail price has droped by as much as $70 per firearm.

A G19 did catch my attention, as well as some G17's in coyote brown & flat dark earth coloured glocks.

Now if Glock would make a G20 in coyote brown, I'd be all over it, saying please take my money.

My wife and I have decided that we're heading to Alaska for her 40th birthday in two years. I'm thinking a Glock 20 may reside on my hip. That or my 4" Mag-Na-Ported S&W 629.

 

I think 6 1/2 inch or longer barrel would serve you better, in a 44 magnum revolver if your heading to Alaska.

A 4 inch barrel is good for personal carry/defence firearm, energy & velocity is lost in shorter barrels.

I'd opted for a G20 & get a lone Wolff 6 inch barrel.

Available max rounds per load in a revolver, 6 rounds in a 44 magnum.

Available max rounds per load in a American legal magazine, in a G20 is 14rds / pending to some states is 10rds.

Canada, max rounds per magazine is 10rds , for handguns.

P210SIG,

 

Last time I went there (been twice) I carried a 6" 629 and it was a beast to lug. This would purely be anti-bear artillery for fishing on the banks of the Kenai or Russian rivers. I have a friend who's lived there for years and knows how to get to the spots that aren't combat fishing tourist traps. However, less people = more bears. So I want to have a gun with a big-ass hole in the end of it, especially since my 3-year-old son would likely come along.

 

I figure a 6" or 6 1/2" barrel would be that much harder to jam in a big coastal brown bear's mouth. :D
